Asian Marinated Salmon with Grilled Pineapple

I feel like all I've been doing lately is rushing around.

With Little Butt starting Pre-K last week and having a new baby with his own appointments, I kind of have been running around constantly.

So please forgive me for this amazingly short post today!

Also, these pictures aren't the best...but I couldn't NOT share this salmon.

I actually don't eat a lot of fish, but my mother in law was really craving seafood so I decided to throw this together for her.

This was actually the first time I had ever grilled salmon. Luckily, it turned out amazing. My mother in law even went back for more. AND she said I need to give my father in law this recipe. LOL!

Sorry I didn't get more pictures, I was in a hurry. LOL!

But even though this may not look the best and I don't have a ton of snapshots, you should still make this dish!

This dish is super easy. You mix up your marinade ingredients, toss in the salmon and let it marinate in the fridge for about an hour.

Remove the salmon and toss it on the grill. Grill up the pineapple. Take the remaining marinade and throw it in a saucepan and heat over medium high heat until it is reduced to a glaze.

Serve it up and enjoy!!! I think the only thing that would make this even better is if you took that grilled pineapple and made a salsa out of it! YUM!
